pledging for support for what's expected to be a lengthy recovery. >> my message to the federal government, no bureaucracy, no red tape, get resources where they're needed as fast as possible, as hard as possible, and for the duration because the recovery process obviously in a place like new jersey is going to take a significant amount of time. >> indeed. the president will travel to hard-hit new jersey tomorrow, and just a week from election day the president's challenger was hardly content to sit on the sidelines. for his part, mitt romney tried to turn an ohio campaign rally into a relief rally. collecting donations for storm victims with a viewing of his campaign video before hand and a few remarks. >> a lot of people hurting this morning. they were hurting last night and the storm goes on. i have had the chance to speak with some of the governors in the affected areas and they've talked about a lot of people having a hard time. you can't always solve all the problems yourself, but you can make the difference in the life of one or two people as a result of one or two people taking an
of help from the federal government. he needs fema help, red cross help and trailers and everything so for a state executive at a bipartisan time, the president, he has an advantage, he can conduct diplomacy so to speak on like two treks. he can have the full machinery of the white house and the disaster response and being statesman like. that campaign isn't over. that campaign is going on and on, both sides, romney and obama, they're putting out press releases, talking points, hitting each other ads are on the air so it hasn't stopped. >> the surrogates are still in motion. >> except for chris christie. >> that's true. >> he's switched sides now a surrogate for the president. sorry. >> and to bring it back to the reality of the situation, chris christie has an extraordinary amount of work on his hands. you know, the next few weeks or months of his life will be busy with nonpolitical activities. after the break workers are stranded, hundreds of businesses are closed, thousands of flights are canceled and the new york stock exchange is shut down. depending on what model you look at, san
uses of social media. >> dana: government can use it well. she deserves recognition. emily rahimi. >> eric: fantastic. do you have a personal story? something close to home. >> andrea: yes. upper west side of manhattan was okay. the pictures don't do this justice. i have power. the family in pennsylvania no, power. jersey shore where i have a spot, summer place has just been destroyed. you talk to people on the ground there, and they say you wouldn't believe this. these are pictures, actually, from a friend and police officers in margate, new jersey, real pictures in real-time. again, social media was place. we pulled a lot of these from facebook. this is where i get coffee. you can't go anywhere. they won't let you get on parts of the island. it's really, really scary the destruction. i just, my heart goes out to the people of new jersey. >> eric: as time goes, we're getting more and more of the pictures. for a long time, the islands weren't accessible. >> andrea: that is the main street where there is traffic and sidewalk traffic. flooded. the picture before that was a boat that
strengthens, policies tightened, governance revisited, and institutions made safer, and our work continues. that brings us to today, on the brink of the one year anniversary, civil lawsuits, perjury trials, and we can expect more fallout to come. over the last year, we have learned much about ourselves, our many cultures, our values, and our vision. we're still working through some difficult issues, but the question remains where do we go from here? the answer can be found by returning to penn state's core mission -- teaching, research, and service. our bottom line is delivering an outstanding education to students. our students are our top priority. i repeat, our students are our top priority, and they are doing great things. for example, this year, our journalism students captured the national championship in the william randolff hurst journalism award. engineering students took top honors in the ecocar competition. others race to get their vehicle to the moon in the lunar x prize competition. meteorology students won the forecasting challenge, and notably this week, more than 3400 penn
as possible. >> i can promise you the federal government will work closely with the state and local officials and we will not quit until this is done. >> the president will try to avoid red tape and bureaucracy can helping states that were slammed by sandy and yesterday's yesterday was void of about tuesday's election which is something that depov gov christy appreciated . >> the president and i are big boys and business of politics and we are aware that the election is in six district attorneys and i asked him where he is campaign doing next . but most of the time we talked about the problems. >> governor christy is one of mitt romney's important surrogates and delivering the key note in the republican national convention two monthses ago. mitt romney is careful not to campaign too fely while people are in the east coast. as he made his closing argument. he made sure everyone in the event was thinking about everyone who is hurting. >> please go vote early and send a dollar extra to the red cross. for our folks that are in harm's way. >> today mitt romney will campaign in the state of virgini
government. the american people who count the most call president obama's handling of tropical storm sandy positive. 4 out of 5 give him good marks as first responder in the crisis. the question before the election is whether this huge story about disaster and executive response is the last big one before we vote. is it the october surprise? the black swan that swoops out of nowhere and changes everything? as scarlet o'hara said, there's always tomorrow. chuck todd is nbc's political director and john heilemann is "new york magazine's" national affairs editor and an msnbc analyst. i guess that's my question to start, but let me give you this first. the president this afternoon bagged a big endorsement, new york mayor mike bloomberg, who is always interesting to watch. he cited the president's stance on climate change as the major reason. he writes, quote, one believes a woman's right to choose should be protected for future generations. one does not. that difference, given the likelihood of supreme court vacancies, weighs heavily on my decision. one recognizes marriage equality as consiste
. and the president is doing his job, and itth a time when government s been under assault in the political arena, and it gives the president a chance to show that government can have a positive influence in people's lives. government is working here. the states could not respond fully on their own, ey need the help, and so i think this is a moment that i wish we could capture it in a bottle, and continue forwar it's a good thing. >> rwu think this fellowship could be short-lived?>> >> no, i don't think it will be short lived. i think this is the decisive moment for chris christie's governor ship of new jersey. you don't have a tragedy like this and event golike this, hopefully, no more than once, and the president was by his side, and as pat said, eleanor said, this is a bipartisan moment whenpeople are trying to have government work. >> how long will it last? the rebuilding, i mean. two ars? >> it will last years, years. >> will that make this relationship a little bit more, arsobering? you are assuming, of course, that in that question that president obama will be the president as we go forwar
need government to step in and solve these problems. most of the heroic things have been done by businesses, families and churches. president barack obama has dealt with this crisis. it did not hurt that the governor of new jersey, you know, had very complimentary things to say about him. we will see if this caused a bit of a stall in the bit from a momentum we have seen over the last few weeks. connell: we stopped to asking questions like that the past couple days, for obvious reasons. we try to look at these sites that aggregate the polls. on average now it is all tied up nationally. i am sure the national polls that it was as we get to the last few days. the president seems to have a lead in ohio. how would you handicap it, if you are looking at it back i have been looking at the polls all morning. they do show, basically, a dead heat right now. probably had a two or three-point lead a week or two ago. the storm, a lot of people -- connell: i have to interrupt you. we have breaking news now with a briefing of the mayor, michael bloomberg. >> let me caution everyone listenin
at the state level with the federal government pitching in, helping out as they can. the president arrived in atlantic city. he was greet at the bottom of the stairs by an individual on the republican side that's praised him so e fusively and that's chris christie. they got aboard marine one. administrator fugate was with them. they traveled about an hour. long beach island, ship bottom, seaside heights, seaside heights, in particular, as we have seen from our media helicopters hit particularly hard. the president has landed on the way now to a community center that's sheltered as many as 200 at the worst part of the storm at a place outside of atlantic city. there we expect the president to tour the shelter, helping out those in distress and then make a statement, steve. i think we can expect the president to try to project calm, concern, empathy, authority if you will. what we'll not see the president project is any sort of overt political age toll this. this is all very serious and chris christie by his side as he had all afternoon. >> it's still tore and talk about the tone of the pres
. that individuals create jobs not government that creates jobs. [applause] when mitt romney is president he is going to need another united states senator, republican senator from florida. [applause] how many here have already voted? [applause] and for those of you who wake up tomorrow morning and go vote. after you vote for mitt romney go down the ballot a little more and vote for connie mack. can you do that? there are dig differences between senator nelson and myself. he was the deciding vote for obamacare. i voted against obamacare. [applause] senator nelson has voted for higher taxes 272 times. i voted to cut taxes. [applause] senator nelson voted to gut our military. i voted to strengthen our 34il8 tear. military [applause] a couple of things happen when i beat senator nelson. the second thing that happens is harry reid will no longer control the agenda. [applause] so florida, we're counting on you, we're counting on you to get out there and vote for mitt romney. i'm counting on you to go out and vote for me. together we'll make sure that mitt romney is the next president, that i'm the next se
make sandy the second costliest storm trailing only virginia. the federal government is feeding hundreds of thousands of victims who in many cases no longer have homes. >> fema worked with our national guard. i'm going to join them now in bringing 1 million meals to new york. >> shepard: a warm meal in a region where it is now november and temperatures are dropping fast. "the fox report's" correspondent the shortages are ridiculous. >> yi, -- yeah, shep, this on the far west side of midtown manhattan is one of the few gas stations that is still open anywhere in the city. you can see the tanker there, that is the third time it has been here today since we have been here for the last 8 hours or so to actually fill up. so people keep coming. and take a look ought his or her at the lines. people have been waiting in line, one and a half, two hours all day. new york's finest nypd here to keep order because as you can imagine in these situations where they are waiting block after block after block of this avenue in new york, tempers do sometimes flair. but mayor bloomberg said today t
governments for more than a little help. the need for public assistance in a crisis like this storm is simply massive. back in june 2011 when governor romney was trying to win over republican primary voters at a debate, you may have seen this. he had this to say about how to fix the financially-strapped federal emergency management agency better known as fema. take a listen. >> romney: every time you have an occasion to take something from the federal government and send it back to the states, that's the right direction. and if you go even further and send it back to the private sector, that's even better. >> jennifer: send it back to the private sector is even better. fast forward to today. seven days until the election. the nation is seeing the aftermath of hurricane sandy. romney didn't have an answer for reporters when they asked him five times about fema. for perspective on what fema might look like under a romney administration, i'm joined by marcos, the founder and the publisher of daily kos. he joins us from
rate is worse than the national average making the case for continuing a strong government role. >> today there are thousands of workers building long lasting batteries and solar technology and wind turbines all across the country. jobs that weren't there four years ago. >> mitt romney meantime in virginia where the unemployment rate is lower than the national average. he ridiculed the president for his plan to create a new cabinet position a secretary of business. >> i don't think what we need is another government bureaucrat that supposedly knows something abouton creation. i think it would be helpful to have a president who understands job creation. >>> the new unemployment numbers come out in about 3 and a half hours. they expect 121,000 jobs created last month if that's the case. that is lower than the monthly aying we have seen so far this year. >>> thank you very much, doug, we appreciate it. >> there are new details about the benghazi terror attack including claims that the state department decided not to send a rapid response team. peter doocy is live with that story. >
. there is a sense that these kind of situations will make people turn and embrace big government, but you're already seeing a lot of of flaws in the federal response, fema not getting a lot of these generators that they promised online quickly, so, i don't see any kind of a national move toward bigger government as a result. >> paul: kim, the other big story this week is that the romney campaign has been expanding the field. the electoral field moving into pennsylvania with a very big ad buy much bigger than the obama campaign and even talking a little how the fact that minnesota could be into play and the president was in wisconsin, and close to campaign in iowa, places where he should, you think he would have locked up. do you take this expansion of the field seriously? >> yeah, and i think that this is part of the momentum argument for romney, now, you've had the obama campaign desperately trying to tamp that down saying it's not true, it's not real. the reality is what you've seen since the denver debate is mitt romney pulling ahead in a lot of places, now, that momentum has slowed down a little
.s. invasion and the toppling of hussein -- pusan -- a secular liberal government that was willing to cede some of its sovereign rights to a foreign power. some claim it's all different now with the islamic republic because the arab awakening, the demonstration effect will work together with sanctions to find the break the back of the islamic republic. but this ignores the fact that the islamic republic sees the arab awakening as hugely positive, hugely positive. iranian policymakers and analysts believe that any arab government, any arab government that becomes at all more representative of its populations beliefs, concerns and policy preferences will, by definition, be less enthusiastic about strategic cooperation with the united states, let alone with israel, and more open to iran's message of foreign policy independence. what policy elites here ms., is the islamic republic does not need governments to be more pro-iranian. that's not what they need. they just need these governments to be less pro-american, less pro-israel and more independent. but you often hear in washington in particular t
argument, making a stronger case for government. he will point to the way forward to real change. it will say this apparently in his stump speech that will create a stronger future for all american. meanwhile, romney heads to three states. he will be in the midwest in wisconsin and ohio. on friday night, ryan, romney, and their wifs kick off the final stretch in westchester, ohio, where they are joined by 100 governors, senators, and mayors. on friday romney travels to new hampshire and colorado. sunday is still up in the air. on the trail in florida, romney began laying out his arguments, a shorter message than last week. >> to get us on track to a balanced budget, that's going to take some real work. to get that done it going to require something in washington that's spoken about but not done and it's something i have to do. i've got to be able to reach across the aisle and get good republicans and democrats to work together. >> meanwhile, we've got new nbc news marist polls and they all show a tightening race. the president leads in the three that released today. in iowa, pres
a situation like this where we do need a government agency to come to the rescue when we have a natural disaster like this. of course he has changed his tune a little bit. >> cenk: i have that for you ana. let's watch during the primary debates when he was radical romney. he was totally against fema. let's watch that clip right now. >> fema is about to run out of money. some people say do it on a case by case basis. some say maybe we're learning a lesson that the state should take on more of this role. >> romney: absolutely. any time you have an occasion that takes something from the federal government and sends it back to the states, that's the right direction. and go further and send it to the private sector, that's even better. >> cenk: so very clear. no fema. this week, as president i will assure fema has the funding it needs to fulfill it's mission. while director max resources to the first responders who work tirelessly to help those in need because states and localities are in the best position to give aid from natural disaster. same thing. what position do you need me to have? >
't want functions government? >> he doesn't live in new jersey or new york. >> he doesn't care that people have lost their lives? >> he doesn't care, no. >> really? >> it's of no consequence to him. i'm not saying that the loss of life is of no consequence to him, but the needs of new jersey and new york at this point are of no consequence to him, otherwise he would say, well, you know, it's nice to see them working together. but he's so determined to, you know, help romney win this election that he actually engaged in -- maybe he was joking -- but a little bit of gay baiting if you listen to the full broadcast today where, you know, he said this was man loving man and going heavily with the love metaphors between the two politicians. but, you know, the larger impression here is one of bipartisanship which is extraordinarily important because a lot of voters, they are concerned that the president has not been more successful with republicans. and the addition of mike bloomberg and then earlier in the week colin powell, a moderate republican, that's a trifecta, bloomberg, christie, powell.
of government and fails to create the essential growth and employment that we need. >> now, during monday's debate, he noted the immediate danger of debt, too. >> admiral mullen said that our debt is the biggest national security threat we face. >> but what would president mitt romney do to slash the debt? well, given everything we know now, his plan doesn't add up. we know three big things about romney's plan. one. he wants to cut tax rates and pay for it by closing loopholes. two. he wants to increase defense spending by about $2 trillion over ten years. and three, he says he'll balance the budget at the end of his second term. let's start with the tax cuts. >> i want to bring down rates. want to bring the rates down, at the same time, lower deductions and credits so we keep getting the revenue we need. >> romney's across the board tax cut of 20% is $5 trillion worth. now, romney plans to close loophole to pay for it. we just don't know which wups, so we had to take some liberties on the map here. the joint committee on taxation did one test study and i have it right here. keep in mind,
foreign policy crisis. >> on sunday the israeli government ordered total mobilization. on monday, their armed forces penetrated deeply into egypt and to the vicinity of the suez canal, nearly 100 miles away. and on tuesday, the british and french governments delivered a 12-hour ultimatum to israel and egypt, now followed up by armed attack against egypt. the united states was not consulted in any way about any phase of these actions. nor were we informed of them in advance. >> president eisenhower sounding kind of mad, right? the u.s. had not been informed about the attack ahead of time. because ike had made clear to our allies, to england specifically, that he didn't want another big multi-country conflict in the world. he'd worked with the u.n. to keep that attack from happening. he had made his intentions clear and then england and france just went behind his back and did it anyway and they did it a week before he was facing re-election. >> president dwight d. eisenhower is re-elected to the highest office in the land as world peace faces the greatest crisis since the second w
could see, instead of being pushed aside because the government wants to take over the children, and not let the parents have anything to say -- there are other subjects as well as the middle-class. host: will give you a chance to respond to some of her comments. guest: i think she is right. all the voters should have an opportunity to look behind the ads and build into the research on the individual candidates. they should come out knowing this country needs a change in direction, and who will create the number of jobs that are necessary. i think governor mitt romney has that program, if you look at it in depth. his commitment to produce 12 million jobs over the next four years, the way this country has to do. also, to take regulation out of the small business community, so that our small businessmen, who are the real job creators, know what is going to happen over the next four years. if you look at what has happened in ohio, with governor kasich, who inherited a rainy day fund that had 23 cents in it -- the state was $8 billion in debt. he was able to balance the budget, put
of government spending. where is the recovery? "fox & friends" begins now. it's ominous morning this morning as we begin to see what sandy does on the east coast. tropical storm the. >> the cold front coming from the west one monster slow moving storm so its effects can be felt for a few days. has sites set on the united states. rick reichmuth has been following sandy's path. so i get, rick, that's good news. others say it can be worse than irene. >> don't pay attention to it being downgraded. it doesn't mean anything. it's not really completely a tropical storm. it's going to be transitioning to what we kind of consider a nor'easter. we are accustomed to nor'easters. that kind of a event. moisture associated with a tropical storm. tropical storm holds a lot more water in the atmosphere as it transitions. that water is still going to be there radar picture showing the rain is following across parts of the carolinas. the rain is going to be heavy all day. battering waves, a lot of wind. beach erosion and that sort of thing here. go forward on the track of this storm. continues to move northea
government will be working as closely as possible with the state and local officials, and we will not quit until this is done. we are not going to tolerate red tape. we're not going to tolerate bureaucracy. and i've instituted a 15-minute rule essentially on my team, you return everybody's phone calls in 15 minutes. whether it's the mayors, the governors, county officials. if they need something, we figure out a way to say yes. >> and the president of the united states and i have now had six conversations since sunday. that shows to me a level of caring and concern and interest that i think a leader should be giving to this type of situation. this was as comfortable and relaxing an interaction i've had with the president since i've known him. and i think it's because we're both doing what we want to do, which is to get things done. there will be some folks who will criticize me for complimenting him. you know what? i speak the truth. that's what i always do. sometimes you guys like it. sometimes you don't. sometimes politicians like it. sometimes they don't. but i say what i feel and what
rangel on the government's stormy response to sandy and how it reverberates. and first the very latest what's going on. forget the dollars, it's sandy thing is turning dire, very dire, over 100 dead now with the count expected to go higher as rescue workers finally reach the flooded homes and no less than michael bloomberg predicting more bodies will be found. and president obama fema headquarters this morning, holding a conference call with the governors of new york, new jersey, and connecticut. and it's that '70s show in the garden state all over again. new jersey governor chris christie ordering odd-even rationing to ease the incredibly long lines. and odd numbers on the license plates, odd days and even numbers on the plates, in some 12 counties and governor mitt romney wrapping up an event in new hampshire and governor gin cal travelling with him. we'll talk to him in a few moments. back to staten island and the storm after the storm. those escaping death now pleading with city officials for food, water, and any help they can get. to anna kooiman on staten island now, anna? >> all
senate seat in 1980, he maintained his optimism and faith in government and his belief that america's best days were always ahead which he became a war hero a prd and congressman and a presidential nominee of his party. but he wasn't a don't you know who i am type of guy. we can all hear him saying to someone who knew perfectly well who he was, you know fred, i ran for president fred in 1972 which is not to say that he was about pride. this is a man who jumped out of an air plain at age 88. while he did that to raise knowledge about hunger. he wanted to prove he still had a little fly boy in him. he had a way with words, come home america, don't throw away your conscious. he was eloquent in moving but his actions were more powerful. there were millions and millions around the world who are not starving to death who have hope because of george mcgovern's actions. perhaps because he witnessed the horrors of war, he was a champion for peace. not because he opposed all wars but because he knew that war all represents a failure of human imagination. even when some have the audacity to qu
of settle on the big question, how much government are we going to have, and how are we going to pay for it, then a lot of the other stuff falls into place. >> can you get medicare done? >> i think we can. >> because republicans demagogue it. democrats demagogue it. everybody's demagogued it through the years. can you go to the republicans and say, guys, we've got to do this together. >> well, here's what we can do. look, i'm on record, i think turning it into a voucher is a bad idea. i do think, though, that anybody realistically looks at it and says, if we're spending 17% of our gdp on health care and every other country's spending 11% and their outcomes are better, that difference is 6%, that's our deficit and our debt. and so let's find good ideas -- now, i stole a whole bunch of ideas from a massachusetts governor that i think over time is going to save us money. the $716 billion that governor romney suggests i stole from medicare actually is money that we are saving in the system and extending the life of medicare. so i think there are ways we can do this in a creative way. but if we
of attacks on our consulate, on other outposts of the british government, the red cross. somebody denied that, and the president says he cannot answer that question because there is an fbi investigation. >> well, we do know that the first responsibility for the protection of u.s. embassies and consulates is with the host government, and we also know that the host government is not capable of providing security for our embassy or our consulate, so therefore the responsibility falls to the department of state. and it is without question the department of state that the ambassador all over the world, ambassadors' describe what they believe to be their security situation and make requests for assistance. clearly there were a great many signals among other indices were leaving. we noon that september 11th was an anniversary of the 2001 attacks on america, and from everything you can read it is pretty clear that there were requests that were not fulfilled. we know for a fact that the security was inadequate because we lost four americans, including the ambassador. lou: we lost those four lives. and
